by nasd which is the private sector regulator of the u.s. brokerage industry. the focus of this series is on financial regulation. and each year we have had a leading public official responsible in some way for u.s. financial regulation. this year our speaker is a tiny bit of a stretch. he was c.e.o. of freddie mac from mid 2009 to just a few months ago. while in that role he was not a public regulator, he was responsible for returning a very large public financial institution. freddie mac and fannie mae are what are called government sponsored entities, g.s.e.'s. for years they were described as private companies with a public of supporting housing, or, more simply, as mixed public-private enterprises. in september of 2008 both failed financially, were placed in government conservatorship. becoming quite unmixed, just public corporations. the g.s.e.'s have had many problems prior to the could have beenor ship. ed was not part of that, arriving about a year after conservatorship. but he was part of the solution. the task of running freddie mac is a big challenge. it is a very large bus

, are you prepared to see u.s. troops stay indefinitely? >> at this point i agree with the time line. we want to bring our men and women back home. what troubles me is that when we make decisions for political purposes, perhaps for election purposes. and i'm not sure that plighting our intentions to put out difficult nit time lines was and would be the smartest answer. you've got people over there that want to do us harm. you've got the taliban there that think about human bppings differently than we do. we know about the atrosstiss to women. and so we haven't done a good enough job in educating our country about the bad guys that exist. that we need to meet them offshore before they come on shore. it's only been ten years since 9/11. >> first of all, i applaud the president for having brought our sons and daughters home from iraq. a war we should have never been in and a war i voted against. i have been an advocate in changing our policy in afghanistan to count terrorism. we're trying to prop up a government in afghanistan. couldn't terrorism requires far less troops and focuses at stri
think the u.s. economy is ready for a breakthrough. there are some positive signs as we saw last week. but as i mentioned in my opening, i think congress is the shackle. congress is the ankle wait now and ineffective for congress fiscally irresponsible and doesn't know how to work together. the decision to filibuster and block a veteran jobs bill and farm bill before election day is a perfect example we have to put new ways of thinking in congress. we have to fix the economy by investing in infrastructure and expanding educational opportunities and leveling the playing field for small businesses but we can't get there if congress is fiscally responsible and doesn't work together. on the fiscal side i have a record. governor during the worst recession since 1930's, cut by a billion in spending, cut my own -- cut $5 in spending, cut my own pay as lieutenant governor and governor to try to two the right thing to keep virginia leading the way among other states. we were taupe of all of the accolades of states whether i when i was governor at a very difficult time. my opponent has a differ
. then there's the u.s. one of the country's less dense than the us is canada. for the most part, the united states is at the low end of the density scale. that's why in some ways we have a peculiarly american problem. then we have new jersey and rhode island as the most dense states at 1200 people per square mile and new jersey is more dense than india. the state that's closest to the averages missouri. the state that you can barely see the bar is not because of the color of the image but because there are so low levels of density relative to the high- density states. south dakota it is 10.9 people per square mile or wyoming, 5.9% people per square mile. it cannot be seen if that's the level of difference we have in the u.s. finally, population loss. one thing that's going on is you are thinking about i will invest in something and investment decisions will be motivated by expectations of the future. if you think there will be fewer households in the area you might be serving, that's another thing that could make you think twice about what you will make investments in today. let's put some
in syria will have impact on russia and it's neighborhood which they have the islamic problem. u.s. argues it is lucky at a distance with two oceans on either side and not as exposed as russia is and nobody has been able to tell him what happens when assad leaves. they also believe that the worst groups around assad much leave which pushes assad to dig his leels in and pushes russia to make it happen. i'm sharing the conversation i had with him. and that was not going to happen. and his key question is what happens when assad leaves and this is where the communique and approach we're discussing becomes important. let me for theoretical purposes say for arguments sake. let's say everybody grease to the political set mment and transition. and we agree for a period of a year to go through the political transition. the key question becomes at what point does assad leave? the worst argue that is with assad in place, you will not be able to make any changes or go through transition. so assad must go up front. the russians would want assad to go but maybe at the point when you establish the inter
